A book based on a real story, documenting a life story of a family betrayed by their sick motherland and forced to leave it behind, is truly heart breaking. Taking one family as an example and focusing on their hurdles, thoughts, concerns, humiliation, relationships, worries, gains and losses within a few time frames creates a compelling picture that stays with you for a long time. Keeping in mind how recently these events happened, I understand that a layer of [our] civilization is really thin. We must remain vigilant for those atrocities to never be repeated again, and to treat all people regardless of their origin, ethnicity and race as humans, with respect.
